A bit of this, that and the other, and life in China
#bygracealone

This is actually a #fail Nature Play but not totally because there was still fun to be had, and numbers to be learnt. 
Pixie can count well. She counts mentally. She can count upto 10 in Chinese.  And in English, can sometimes count upto 20 πŸ˜†. But not necessarily recognize numbers - because I haven't priotized that. We aren't in a rush to learn 123s + ABCs because I'm learning that there's the time for that isn't "ASAP", and right now there are other learnings that are far more important for her now, that we desire to focus on.

Nevertheless, I do sometimes incorporate written numbers during play and it sometimes goes well, and sometimes doesn't.

This here was inspired by @letkidsbecreative but we didn't have any long-stalked single flowers around us, and so we used blades of this gorgeous grass. 
Aaaaand It was a windy day. Enough said πŸ˜†πŸ˜†. #cantwait2play_summerplay #cantwait2play #natureplay #charlottemasoninspired #playwithnature #slowliving #toddlerlife #toddlerplayinjune #goslow #natureinspires

One of the simplest ways to incorporate nature into your week would be to just take your read-aloud book outdoors! It doesn't have to match the environment πŸ˜† , but a nature-themed book does sink in well, when read sitting under a 🌲☺️. If you haven't been participating in the #summerchallenge
 with @cantwait2play, you can jump in for this week  if playing with nature interests you!

The prizes can be won internationally!

USING A NEEDLE 
Thanks to my mum for the blunt needle recco. Threading through large pompom balls is working out SO brilliant for #finemotorskill. It's really not as easy as it looks. While I thought just poking through them would be fun enough, Pixie said "mama, make a necklace!", So we did 😊. This is the last of the #neon series for @a.pop.of.culture (do I hear a sigh of relief?). Question for you guys with small apartments (or big houses, doesn't matter 😁):
What do you do with all the toddler crafts and creations? Do you store them or throw them?

Does this count as a craft?@cantwait2play #cantwait2play_summerplay #cantwait2play #finemotorskills #toddlercraft #diytoddleractivities #toddlerjewelry #pompom #yarnart #toddlercraft #learnthroughplay #childcareadventures

Painting sticks for @get.creative.with and continued to use the #neon paints for @a.pop.of.culture but we couldn't complete the project. The board on the right is my #wip.. And yes, those paints are going to the back of my drawer now, I think I'm getting slightly dizzy with the brightness πŸ˜…. Doing a bit of craft doesn't mean it has to be spectacular. The only thing that really matters is the time we've spent with our littles, crafting or laughing.  Another day for CRAFT WEEK with @cantwait2play.

PROCESS ART+CRAFT ...that didn't go anywhere , which is the real idea behind process art.

We used earbuds, lotus stems, sponge, paintbrushes,  and fingers to decorate colored paper with florescent paints. I tried a black light hack which didn't work , so the point of using the #neon paints went down the drain.

This is an incomplete craft project , but it's complete in the sense that Pixie has had a bright week with all the painting and crafting! We also have a box of superbly colorful printed bits of paper that are going to make for some fabulous confetti! 
Again some neon for @a.pop.of.culture

a piece of an old top+ cardboard+
gingko leave+
highlighters = CRAFT ACTIVITY
@cantwait2play is ending this craft week and I hope you're looking forward to the next week of summer fun! 
This #arthack was discovered one night when Pixie wanted to print leaves and I didn't want to take out paints. So I took out the highlighters my mum brought for #toddlerplay and they spread across the leaves beautifully and thus was created the  #nomessartπŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨. So again, I'd appreciate being tagged if you use this idea 😊. Also ticking off #neon for  @a.pop.of.culture

PROCESS ART- NEON

We didn't know where we were going with this. This is a piece of fabric I had. There was a butterfly print on it. I outlined it with #neon yarn that I was finally able to use because @a.pop.of.culture thought of it!

The first time I'd seen #superlightclay was 8 years ago in a Chinese kindergarten. I was fascinated - the texture, the way it dries up, the  featherweight, the easeful moldability. I have no idea of how toxic it is, and it doesn't serve much purpose in strengthening finger muscles, but  it's definitely a very interesting clay.

I have a set (I've got SO much of craft supplies - and a lot of it given) which has a few of these garrish colors which I'd never use otherwise. Was absolutely pumped about having the opportunity to use it to "paint" . 
So Pixie spread out the clay on the fabric, and we let it dry. She also did some bubble-wrap stamping with neon paints ( these paints have been out EVERYDAY). If you do try using this clay in this way, I would appreciate a tag ☺️. #cantwait2play_summerplay #cantwait2play #toddlerplayinjune #toddlerart #processart #getcreativewith #fabricart #playideas #teachinvestigateplay

This week was filled with 'life' here and although I had big ideas for @cantwait2play craft week, I couldn't go through with any of it, which for me is a personal letdown😭. Playing along with #sticks for @get.creative.with featuring our little bamboo stick man!

Kubby said " think of toys to make with bamboo - we have plenty of it". These were leftovers from the house my  dad made for Pixie, and Kubby drilled holes in them.

The plus to this is that pushing in ribbons or pipe cleaners works well for #finemotorskill practice.

TICO 
#bookishplay

After we read this lovely book by #liolionni last evening, I asked if we should make a tico craft. She said yes and gave me ideas for it (swipe for video and process).
We don't have golden paper, so back to the treasured little  jar of gold poster paint it was.

I tried to incorporate the trendy stippling using earbuds, but she got bored soon enough and poked a hole through the 🐦. That's when I knew she was done. I was tempted to fill it up, but then the idea of  retaining the toddler essence took over πŸ˜„. Ending this Art week with this bird to go with the prompt  @ohcreativeday.😁

STRING ART

This doesn't get old. We're missing my mum @debdave86 here, and so some posts featuring her time with Pixie! This was a month ago, right after Pixie got given a box of pairs and wanted to have a go at them. (Only her grandma has the patience to sit through 10 sheets of string painting πŸ˜„). Featuring the best , as interpreted by Pixie.

P.S. she hasn't seen a single dino cartoon or video πŸ˜†. I'm assuming she's working with the dino toys she's seen with other kids + Dinosaur Stomp & Tyrannosaurus Rex by Mother Goose (audio only πŸ˜†). #cantwait2play_summerplay #cantwait2play #processart #stringart #toddleractivities #toddlerart #painting #summerfun #toddlerimagination #inhereyes #grandma #love #spendingtimetogether #creativechildren

SPIDERS/PROCESS ART

A summary of Pixie's  interest in spiders and crawlies need to be reserved for another post. Pixie's friend came over with her mum+grandma for a #bookishplaydate. 
That they arrived at 8 a.m. is a detail I don't want to elaborate on 🀐. Pixie had painted a few walnut shells a week or so ago, and I'd been meaning to turn them into 🐞, but was busy having a great time with my parents and didn't get around to doing it. So I used them for two spiders that frightened the little friend πŸ˜‚. THE VERY BUSY SPIDER by #ericcarle
πŸ•·οΈ a simple 'fence' with a  white thread web
πŸ•·οΈ walnut shell+pipe cleaner Spidey
πŸ•·οΈ animal models
πŸ•·οΈ incy-wincy/itsy-bitsy spider
πŸ•·οΈ crayon resist art (that the Grannie ε₯Άε₯Ά enjoyed as much as the littles. I had to supply more sheets of white crayon drawings for themeπŸ˜’. #magicpainting

CW2 PROMPT- ART ACTIVITY 
For the past month Pixie has been asking to make cards for people. So when I suggested she make cards for her aunts to send back with her grandparents (who leave tomorrow 😭), she said she wanted to make pink owls. I decided to use paint since my life revolves around IG prompts 😜😜😜 ( JK!!!)
#cantwait2play_summerplay.
.

This card was done with minimum interference from me. I was more of the director in this act. I only did a little bit of the cutting, and used a black marker to make the outline a little more even, but I'm so proud of my 2.5 year old for drawing (ovals and the branches) painting, cutting, finger painting leaves , and glueing the owls. She was really sleepy when she did this but we have so much more to do today and I wanted to get the cards done before the afternoon! 
We do so much of art & craft that doesn't get recorded, but doing process art with her regularly has made it easier to restrain myself from "perfecting" Pixie's handiwork and seeing the beauty in her work!

NATURE PLAY - GARDEN

We may live in little apartment but the pros of not being in a large city and not in the city centre is that we get to enjoy nature , plenty of it. 
Pixie has been wanting to have a picnic for the past two days and yesterday she laid out her POA. The Chinese couple she wanted to invite are out of town for the break, so she had to make do with grandma and mama accompanying her. 
This is all grandma's doing of course - catch me scooping out moss 😬. Digging + making mud lollipops was what Pixie was most interested in.

I can't begin to tell you how much motherhood has taken me out of my comfort zone - one of it is touching mud with my bare hands 😧. This is my humble share to participate in #natureplaymay , as an intentional way to #learnthroughnature .

PROCESS ART

I'm increasingly allowing Pixie to lead the way in art & craft, and holding back on my expert opnions πŸ˜†. Pixie: Mama, want to do activity. 
Me: Alright, what shall we make? 
Pixie : scary creature.

So I dig through my store of expired/stale foodstuffs, and  take some scrap paper. She decided on the shapes for the head and the body, I had to help with the limbs. 
1. I drew a rough triangle.

PROCESS ART I'm increasingly allowing Pixie to lead the way in art & craft, and holding back on my expert opnions πŸ˜†. Pixie: Mama, want to do activity. Me: Alright, what shall we make? Pixie : scary creature. So I dig through my store of expired/stale foodstuffs, and take some scrap paper. She decided on the shapes for the head and the body, I had to help with the limbs. 1. I drew a rough triangle. 2. Pixie applied glue using a paint brush. 3. She then sprinkled buckwheat over the glue. 4. Dusted off the extra 5. While it dried, we moved on to the next part. 6. It was her idea to have one eye green and the other black. I did the cutting and she helped.

Back on the gram with a post that summarizes the past fortnight.

My mum's here, and brought us our copy of this fantastic kids Bible @jesus_storybook_bible. It's old news of how fabulously written this is, and this really is the only supplementary bible we need for now 😊. If you're thinking of investing in a Bible for your little, do consider this one!

Drew key images of the Holy Week on some stones and these were used all through the week. My heart did a twirl when Pixie saw the stones the morning after I had made them and exclaimed " mama, easter story ! Look, a tomb, and a cross, and grass and mountains " πŸ’“. For me that meant she'd understood the elements and was absorbing all that was shared with her the past month.

I used stones because that's what she enjoys playing with😁. #belatedeaster #resurrectionday #diycrafts #kidsbiblestories #storystones #handmade #babydevotion #raisingdisciples #intentionalmotherhood #learnthroughplay
